Keep in mind, IA is putting a lot of time into its challenge of the Google book deal. This could be draining what resources they have at this time. The court case is getting close to winding down, although I doubt there will be a decision very soon.

Remember, also, that IA is non-profit, and relies on donations to operate. I haven't made a cash contribution in a while, but this may be a good time to do so.

I highly doubt that the people responsible for this work, now have their sleeves rolled-up fighting google.

"You people doing hands-on tasks will now be working on interrogatories until the evil monster is slayed."

If the reason is budgetary issues, then it doesn't take much for an update that reads: "we have suspended blah, blah, blah until XXX because of budgetary constraints. If you would like to help you can make a donation..." Or a similar note depending on the reason(s) for this current state of inactivity.

I am not even an uploader, but it is frustrating when you see people screaming and no one is answering.

Plus selfishly, I LOVE this site and don't want to see it go down the tubes.

I feel the same way. It's a lot easier to be patient when you know why the situation exists and you have some idea how long you're going to have to keep on being patient. That's all I've really been asking for.

I can see how budgetary constraints might slow down the operations of the Archive, but the last I heard, a straight answer doesn't cost much.

Let us know if you find out anything. For that matter, let us know if you keep running into the same stone wall I keep running into.

I'll try to keep you in the loop if anything turns up.
